Pure as a Crystal, Sparkling as a Diamond: The Development through Tourism of the City of Waukesha from 1870-1900
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, I will be looking at tourism in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Waukesha was built on springs that were reportedly magical and could cure disease. The main time frame where tourism exploded in this area was between the late 1870s until 1900. This is the time frame I will be analyzing. My goal will be to prove that through the expansion of the railroad, coupled with the vision of multiple entrepreneurs, this once small village transformed into a tourist attraction no one wanted to miss.
